  • REMOVE MAKEUP EVERY EVENING: after a long day, it is also good to remove makeup thouroughly, & even if you have not put on any makeup it is ideal to clean our skin well, with a very delicate milk on some cotton, than rinse & put tonic, before applying delicately the night cream, because at night the cream works better especially if massaged softly on our face.
